ManeNights VS background 6 by Jowybean ManeNights VS background 6 by Jowybean
This was an exclusive I was selling at BUCK two weeks ago :phew:. I decided to share it online after the fad has died down. Its very much a fan made piece with the roles reversed :) for both the groups of characters we know and love dearlyit was a lot of fun to design the other nightmare 6 and put ghost mare in there ;) lol. This idea is nothing completely original because who has not thought of this concept in the fandom already. But now its been Jowybeanifed so enjoy. =D

The digital painting style is a little more looser then I would have liked it to be ^^; but overall it’s a colourful illustration.

Check out my FIM title card project…

Until next deviation LATERS :peace:

painted in Photoshop CS6 with my Wacom tablet 5

Epic FTW:woohoo: or Do Not want :rage: you choose :mwahaha:

Now this is something I hadn't seen before, and please remember that I don't get to say that often. When reviewing fanart, what you're doing is hearing variation after variation of the same song or melody. That's one of the problems with fanart, I can almost always say, "yeah, I've seen this before." This artists surprises me, though. This isn't the first time I've been surprised by his originality.

Now in the past I've commented on this artist's ability to give the right areas of his work an enormous amount of detail, but he sometimes comes up short on some potentially important areas. I believe this is that work I was looking for. The one where his style and detail really shine through, without drawbacks. The only thing I wish he had done a little differently is separate the ManeNights a little better. Making them all black and putting them against a dark background was a risky concept. You did a good job, it's just here's a leg behind a wing, here's a wing over one's flank. It's no real problem just my personal opinion.

As I stated before, your style really shines through on this one. I believe it is your best one yet. The ManeNights look awesome, the Background 6 look awesome, the background looks awesome. It's just an awesome piece.
And I don't say that often.

Very well done,
What do you think?

I've been looking through this artist's gallery for a while, and I'm quite impressed with his vast expanse of fanart for MLP.
He devises ways to merge fandoms and create new and more fabulous art! He puts his mark on the Brony world with his unique style and creativity. The way he weaves the colors in his art is amazing and he can be said as a true inspiration.
This particular picture is truly amazing. The expressions of the Nightmare 6 scream insanity and hatred, while the faces of the knights are proud and ready to fight. Little details in this make it all the better. The little party horn in Nightmare Pinkie's mouth, the Doctor's fez and the little 'wub wub' on a box that DJ Pon-3 holds.
It is a truly wonderful piece and I can say that I shall definitely be recommending this to any fans of the show.

I simply just LOVE this picture! So much awesomeness and epicness as I love both Mane and Background Six. And that is why I also bought it while I was at BUCK and now going to have some frames for it.

I like it quite a bit. The Nightmare effect works best on Rarity, Twilight, and Rainbow Dash, and the background 6... well... at least they're determined to go down fighting?
